I selected this on a whim while searching for a new book to listen to while at work. I figured, sure, I could stand some improvement in my decision making process. Who couldn't? So I spend the time to transfer the 10 CDs to my iTunes and then move it to my Nano. I am pleased to report there were no major issues with this--the author was consistent across all discs and most of the CDs were titled appropriately. Thanks for that.

However, within an hour of listening I knew the material was too dry and professional oriented for me. It also seemed to be targeted more towards utilizing the information in a business setting, though it was early on, and hard to tell. I listened a bit longer, until the author mentioned that his ideals were endorsed by (and that's a paraphrase)...Rick Santorum. At that point, I knew I was done with this disc!
